RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Joe Morrissey was again on a Virginia ballot, Henrico County will have a new sheriff after 20 years and the make-up of November’s General Assembly races took shape in Tuesday’s primaries.

Among the more notable races Tuesday was Morrissey’s win over incumbent Rosalyn Dance in the 16th Senate district. There is no Republican candidate in that race.

Additionally, the Democratic challenger for incumbent Republican Amanda Chase in the 11th Senate district was to be decided between Amanda Pohl and Wayne Powell with Pohl gaining the edge. Chase was notable in her first term for wearing a gun into the Senate chamber and for an altercation she had with a Capitol Police officer over a parking violation.
